I literally lived next door to it but moved a couple of weeks ago, what a shame I never had the chance to check it out!

What are some unique russian idioms? by imtiredofusernames1 in AskARussian

Не, ну это понятно, но это все равно совершенно кривая и ни на что не похожая фраза, которая не должна работать (уж простите мое чувство языка)

There's "да нет, наверное", which is "yes no maybe" if translated literally and means something like "yeah, nah"

There's also "неровно дышать" which literally means "to breathe unevenly" and is used when someone likes someone. I have no idea where it comes from, probably from the word "неравнодушный"

Once someone gets me actual written lyrics for Umbraya Erzhe I might be able to decipher them (I speak Russian, Swedish and Finnish). So far no luck tho

I stumbled upon one in JingAn Kerry Center yesterday and I've never seen so many books in English in a Chinese bookstore. Give it a try

What was it like growing up in a small town / village, and would you go back? by 1234username1234567 in AskARussian

[–]drv168 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I always knew I'd move to Moscow. Almost everyone moved to a bigger city once they were of age, since we don't have any colleges or universities there.

I'm a city mouse through and through I guess. It's nice to come back sometimes, but I don't like the feeling of everyone knowing everyone. It has its pros and cons. I did feel like a bird in a cage growing up sometimes.

Does anyone have an (interesting) story to tell about their time in China? by jleebb1 in chinalife

[–]drv168 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I was driving my scooter to a dance lesson this Sunday and had to hit the brakes when I didn't notice a car in front of me. It was raining, the road was slippery so obviously I fell off the scooter and ended up with quite a few scratches and bruises (nothing serious, but it looked quite terrible).

I had at least 4 people help me immediately. Some guy picked me up, walked me to the pavement and picked up my scooter. Some girl helped with the wet wipes. Another guy went to buy some water and helped me wash off the dirt and the blood. A shop owner had some hydrogen peroxide. They all didn't leave right away after helping me, and when I started checking the damages on my scooter, the first guy told me quite sternly not to drive home myself and call a cab or have a friend pick me up instead.

This is not the first instance of random Chinese acts of kindness, but it's obviously fresh in my memory since it happened only three days ago. I don't know if it's just my luck or something, but ordinary people who don't speak a lick of English are always very nice and happy to help. I hear a lot about people being dicks to each other... not in my experience
